Wallowing into attractive and lively night market when travelling Bangkok

The great thing about shopping in Bangkok is the diversity,malls and department stores stay open until at least 21:00 - and some even as late as 22:00, but there's also an ever-increasing number of night markets.

1. Asiatique

If you want to visit a place which is associated between shopping centre and night market, Asiatique is ideal choice. The night market is opened at 5pm with more than 1,500 stores and over 40 restaurants. Asiatique locates next to Chao Phraya and you can go by boat. There are different areas in the night market and each area owns unique beauty.

Veteran shoppers would agree that just about everything is on sale here, although not all at the best bargain rates. But if you have one weekend in Bangkok, squeeze in a day trip to Chatuchak Weekend Market and you will not be disappointed.

3. Khao San Night Market

There are no historical sights to speak of on Khao San Road. That said, its location in the Old City (Rattanakosin) makes it an ideal base from which to explore the city's classic attractions. That's not to say there's nothing to look at or admire. On the contrary, being a hub of unwashed humanity means Khao San Road is the perfect place to do some people watching, and only minutes walking away lies the distinctive bohemian atmosphere of Phra Arthit Road.

Opening Hours: Daily 15:00- 02:00

Location: Khao San Road

4. Silom- Patpong night market

After recently cleaning up its act, Pathong’s become one of the “must” night shopping destinations for avid shoppers. Found in the built- up area known as Silom, the place is always busy and chaotic with all the commotion from the Go- Go bars nearby and lots of foreign tourists.

This market in Bangkok’s notorious nightlife district is often the first and easiest stop for many tourists just arriving to Bangkok, whilst lodging at one of several mid- to- upper- end hotels in Silom. Be warned though, the quality and prices of most items sold are about as real and trustworthy as the girls shaking their wares in go- go bars flanking the area. Both market and go- go bars seem to complement each other well, but remember not to be fooled by first impressions, and to bargain hard.

Opening Hours: 18:00- around 01:00 every day

How to get there: Coming from BTS Siam station, depart at Sala Daeng station and exit down one of the right-hand stairs. Follow the increasing trail of vendors along the sidewalk, and after five minutes, you'll know you're there.

5. Ratchadapisek night market
